Happy 22nd Birthday Macintosh

With today's big announcement of Pixar's purchase by Disney (and at least ten new videos from the same already on the iTMS) and today being the 22nd anniversary of the Macintosh, I offer the original Mac commercial that aired on this date in 1984.

( video link taken down. check back April 1st for the 30th Anniversary of Apple Computer when I'll briefly post it again )

The commercial was dead-on then and it's dead-on now. Times, and computer users, really haven't changed that much. Posted by: Bernie on January 24, 2006 10:51 PM
So true. Although I'd love Mac fanboys (unconscious support) to be more like Macheads (more balanced users and critics). They need to move one from the switch to Intel and today's announcements about Disney and Pixar. They can be such whiners. Posted by: ronn on January 24, 2006 11:24 PM
